Transversality in creation is a constant for Daniela Busarello. Born in Brazil, the country where modernism appeared in 1922, from father and mother architects, this heritage gave him a taste for construction. Architect, urban planner, teacher, she obtained in 2007, the year of her installation in France, a National Architecture Prize in Brazil for the realization of her residence. A 360-degree journey that she cultivates from her arrival passing by the architect Christian de Portzamparc, then at the Louvre school and at the Beaux-Arts, to finally create her agency Slomp Busarello in 2010. No respite for this intrepid tapped by the desire to explore without limits. Far from its landmarks, the artistic adventure is essential “to join the instinct and the freedom of expression”. Painting, drawing, open the imagination and eclipse the resistances. “If reality and technique pose the constraints of an architectural project, the canvas offers an infinite field of expression. Art allows you to get as close as possible to the representation of a utopian architecture to which I aspire” . recalls Daniela. Organic forms with imaginary maps, the silhouette of its improbable continents, lands of introspection for the artist, devour linen fabrics. A dreamlike story in large format, translated into matter by an alloy of beeswax, urban residues, fragments of nature, sea water, real natural pigments. Daniela never stops collecting, inventoring to observe these extracts which take part in the work and serve as inspiration for the drawings. “I marvel at the mutations of cut flowers, to the beauty of the fossilization of still lifes”, she underlines, because the environment remains an essential approach in its creative process. Daniela’s art also explores the decorative arts with collections of Murano glass vases-sculptures. In 2016, the Cogolin Manufacture launched a limited edition of tapestries and rugs “Cosmos.graphie” from eight designs by Daniela Busarello. A work continued with the Manufacture d’Aubusson Robert Four which this year should present a carpet of four meters out of six, at Fuori Salone and at Miart, modern and contemporary art fair, in Milan, or with Collection Latil on a series of rugs but also a unique piece embroidered on gauze by Atelier Montex. After having been designated in 2019 by the FD 100 of the VIA, as one of the hundred designers who promote French Design internationally, the exuberance of the designer inspires the know-how of the big houses again, is displayed at the Mouvements Modernes gallery in Paris, at Maison Gerard in New York, at the Galerie Oak in Toulouse and supports the renovation of a 19th century chateau in France.
